submission to Neil Gaiman’s ’ A Calendar of Tales’, January.
This is my visual depiction of the scene where XII was one grain away from the safety of retirement and the nasty time monsters were trying to snatch him… I tried not to make it a literal illustration.
This is my favorite part of the story. So much happened in that one second- the emergence of a new time watcher, the changing of the guards. This is why we have daylight savings time. hahaha.
Anyways, I wanna know what happens next, damn it.
I changed the title from ‘Yearglass’ to “Guardian’s Door” cuz i couldn’t think of a title when i was submitting it to Blackberry.
